Jumped off the box car down around Tennessee

A riff 1X   C riff 1X        D riff 2X
Mr. Hobo   you gota go now, don’t want you around

C riff 4X
see Im tryin’ to build me a respectable town

C riff 4x
and we don’t nee-ee-eed a hobo like you hangin around

back to G riff


Verse 2
G riff 4X
So I left that town lord had my guitar in my hand
G riff 4X
still cold, tired    kinda mad at the man  but this

C riff 4X
life I chose to live, sometimes its strange see im 

G riff 4X
tryin to learn about the old music by ridin’ a train well

A riff 1X   C riff 1X     D riff 2X
im a hobo   I know but   that’s a price ill pay

C riff 4X

id like to go back, a little further in time well
Im a hobo, I know and that’s the price ill pay
Guess ill write me another song while im on my way

“mr. chooo-choo train”
